In this scientific research, to develop ultimate ultra small structure process technology, we have aimed at establishing the Si-based atomically controlling CVD technology which is applicable for device fabrication and in which atomic layr mixing is suppressed by combining a flash heating CVD method and surface treatment with plasma irradiation etc.Moreover, we have investigated elucidation and formulation of low temperature surface adsorption and reaction process of Si-Ge-C,Si-N and W systems.
As to the Si-Ge system, we have achieved atomic layr-by-layr growth of Si and Ge, and fabricated double-barrier resonant tunneling diodes and observed negative resistance. Moreover, in high concentration impurity doping of P and B into SiGe, we have discussed and formulated the adsorption and reaction process by modified Langmuir-type equations considering the surface bond sites. As to the Si-C system, we have achieved atomic-layr carbonization of Si (100) by CH_4 at 500-600ﾟC and clarified that
the carbon amount depends on the surface impinging CH_4 molecules based on Langmuir-type equations. As to the Si-N system, we have achieved atomic-layr nitridation of Si (100) by NH_3 at 400ﾟC and clarified that the nitrogen amount depends on Langmuir-type adsorption and reaction equations considering desorption. As to low temperature selective deposition mechanism of W is also discussed based on the surface treatment by a preheating method and alternating supply of WF_6 and SiH_4 Furthermore, by using an ECR plasma, we achieved atomic-layr etching of Si, Ge, SiGe and silicon nitride and analyzed the adsorption and reaction process by considering Langmuir-type simple formalism.
Atomically controlling CVD of Si, Ge, etc., is increasingly important technology, because of compatibility with integrated circuits and also because it has potential application to create artificial atomic stacking structures similar to the compound semiconductor structure by using the group IV elements which have been used as an elemental semiconductor. The success of this research project supplies a fundamental key to ultra small device fabrication technology with group IV semiconductors. Less
